How Does Healing Happen?
This is my lifelong question. I began my quest to find this answer in 2002 and I am still learning. I saw my young son heal from a serious issue through supplements and a diet change, so I first thought that was the answer. However, I quickly found out that it was not that simple. I saw his symptoms change based on what I was thinking and believing – basically if I was fearful, he got worse. If I was peaceful and joyful, he seemed to do better. This happened even when I was not physically with him.
This was my introduction to the idea that feeling and beliefs matter and the understanding that we are affecting ourselves and others through our energy.
Hundreds of books, courses, and workshops later, I realize that there is not a definitive answer that is the same for all people in all situations, but that we are all affecting our wellness in a multitude of ways.
What I know for sure is that the answers we seek are within. The first step is always to ask on the inner. Learning about illnesses through books and online can be very helpful, but it may also affect your beliefs and understanding of your body in ways that may limit your ability to heal. Asking on the inner gives your body and soul a chance to let you know what it needs.
If you are feeling a YES as you read this, listen to that. If not, then trust that as well. Always trust your gut, or that feeling from within that feels like a Yes or No. That will tell you what is right for you.
If you are interested, here are a few questions you may want to ask:
Start here and see what you find.
You can contribute to your healing and wellness in small and big ways. Healing is always happening when you commit to love and care for yourself. This does not guarantee the end of the issue but feeling empowered in your health and wellness can move you in the direction of greater peace and hope.

Balancing the Chakras
by Kris Krueger
The chakras are points or energy centers within our field; we picture them as spinning disks of energy that correspond to our physical and emotional bodies. When our chakras are out of balance, we may experience difficulty processing emotions or letting go. We may feel stuck or even have physical unease or distress. As we begin to balance and align our chakras, we may experience a general sense of well-being both emotionally and physically; we may feel present in our bodies and more aware of our emotional state.
While there are many energy points within the human field, we primarily work with the seven chakras set within the physical body. They are as follows:
One way to work with our chakras is by focusing our attention on each area while in meditation. An easy way to do this is to call upon the universal light to enter our bodies. Using our inner senses, we will follow the light as it moves from the top of our head through the soles of our feet, letting it ground us to the earth. We then use our breath to expand the light throughout the body and energetic field, allowing it to fill in any depleted areas within. Once we feel ready to continue, we bring our inner senses to each spinning chakra, one at a time, focusing on any pressing issue relating to that chakra. For example, as we focus on the root chakra, the feeling of being unsupported may arise. When we concentrate the universal light on the spinning chakra, it penetrates and infuses into this energetic center, addressing and releasing any connections or blockages related to that feeling. We can visualize healing through our inner senses as the red of the root chakra becomes clear and vibrant. Once we feel that the process is complete, we move our attention to the Sacral chakra, where we repeat the exercise until we have moved through each of the remaining chakras.
At the end of the meditation, we move our attention to our energetic body, visualizing all the chakras spinning together in unison as each color expands and blends with adjacent energy until they become one light, blended, white, and pure. We give thanks to the universal energy, our bodies, and our energetic field.
